League of Strays by L.B. Schulman Review

League of Strays by: L.B. Schulman

Pages: 145
Source: Net Galley

When Charlotte Brody, a lonely 17-year-old student at a new school, receives an invitation to join The League of Strays, she's intrigued by the group's promise of "instant friendship." The League does provide companionship--and even a love interest--but Charlotte grows increasingly uncomfortable with its sinister mission to seek revenge against the bullies of Kennedy High. When escalating acts of vengeance threaten to hurl her down a path of remorse, Charlotte must choose between her new friends and the direction of a future she's never fully considered.

Don’t you love the Cover?  

In this story the main character (Charlotte) finds herself in a world she never expected to partake on.   Charlotte has always been a “good girl” playing by her parents rules.  Unfortunately the one person she hates moves right along with her.  

She is suddenly drawn in to a circle that might not be the best for her.  After receiving a mysterious note she becomes part of a group that feed on revenge.  The leader of this group Kade entrances her and she is drawn to him.  Even though her body is an alarm warning her to run away she still feels a strong attraction to this boy.

In this story we follow the Charlotte as she transforms from a shy very innocent girl into a strong, independent girl.  She is not afraid to speak her mind when things go bad.

This book has a really good message of female empowerment.  I strongly recommend this book.

I give this book five hearts.
